I would really like to know you better
But sometimes I'm afraid that it's not meant to be
I would like to believe in something higher
But I can't get a grip on all the little things

When the night comes I cannot sit still you see
And the years they have not been so kind to me
Got a gallery of figures standing all in a row
And every single figure has a soul of its own
But I never look back
Never look back
Don't turn your back on me

(Hey yeah) My life has come unraveled again
Like so many threads
(Hey yeah) my life has begun unfolding
In so many pieces
(Hey yeah) my life has come unraveled again like
So many threads in the wind - drift away - drift away

There's a time and a place
For understanding
And a time when action speaks louder than words
And I don't seem to get no indications
And I don't know how to get through to you
And when time like the pyramids
Has worn away
All the mountains and the valleys
Of the words that we say

We have got to make sure that something remains
If we lose each other we've got no one to blame
So never look back
Never look back
Don't turn your back on me
